I haven’t compared my hardtop to others so I wanted to ask if this alignment seems about normal. Feel free to post your photographs so we can get an average hard top look

The alignment/fitment of mine looks the same yours, everywhere except for the the area where it meets with the a-post and windshield header.

'97-'03 top on a '06.

Looks fine to me. If the bolt holes line up, and the front clamps clamp...shouldn’t it be good? How much variation could there be? If it were ‘off’ the bolts wouldn’t go in or the clamps wouldn’t close, right? Am I oversimplifying this?

*haven't had a hardtop myself in many years*

Love that copper color. Best color out there IMHO.

My LJ top has white alignment clips that line up with slots on the tub. Do TJs not have these?

Here's a mucket.

I have a leak and one of the suggestions was hardtop alignment so I was curious what others looked liked
